We met David about four years ago and in that time, David has been amazing, keeping us up to date with regular phone calls and his monthly snapshot on the market.
We were not disappointed with our choice in David from Belle Property. He was a great communicator, knowledgeable and most importantly trustworthy. David and the team went above and beyond for us, organising trade support, running regular open homes himself including private appointments, not to mention detailed written reports informing us of buyer interest. We believe his attention to detail and professionalism were key to the success we achieved.
Thank you, David, for all your hard work, we will certainly be using you again in the future and will be recommending you to family and friends.
We had decided to put our North Sydney investment property on the market with the intention of going to auction just before Christmas, realising we were in a falling market period. As we live in Country NSW, I was introduced to David by a mutual friend and he immediately devised a plan to have the property ready.
David organised a stylist, conveyancer, the gardener, handyman, Building & Pest Report and any other aspects he thought needed attention to the house within the first week before listing the property for sale. Nothing was ever too much trouble and David kept me informed all throughout the marketing campaign.
David was in constant communication as to how much interest there was for the property and gave me running reports of all advertising campaigns and people inspecting the property. The property went to auction in early December with the market still falling, however, David was always very optimistic as to getting a good result, judging by the comments received by various interested parties.
With his professional manner and personal touch, we were able to achieve $58K above our reserve in a very tough market. I would have no hesitation in recommending David, & Belle Property, to achieve the very best result from marketing, & selling, your property.
David has integrity and was very honest in my dealings with him. Personal presentation was outstanding along with written reports after each open house being detailed which indicated he has great communication skills with buyers. His attention to detail in presenting my property to the market ensured an excellent outcome. I can recommend David to sellers and buyers would be comfortable in knowing they can trust him.
Responsive, friendly and ethical.
David was a pleasure to deal with - responsive, easy going and an open communicator. I would recommend David to others. He was prepared to put in significant time and energy to achieve his client's goal of selling in a difficult market.
We were very happy with David and the team at Belle Property Neutral Bay. David is an excellent communicator, and very client/outcome focussed. Despite a softening market, David achieved a very credible result and worked hard to get a successful outcome. David has a financial services and real estate background as I understand it and used this background combination to good effect.
In a changing market I believe it is crucial in selecting the right agent and I couldn't be happier with my choice. David kept me well informed throughout the campaign and managed to negotiate a premium result, achieving an apartment record for my street! If you want an agent that you can trust who will work tirelessly to get you the best result then choose David Benjafield from Belle Property Neutral Bay!
Highly recommend David as an agent!
David is a professional, dynamic and results driven agent who went above and beyond to successfully sell my property. David always had my best interest at top of mind understanding my requirements. He was very diligent with high levels of engagement every step of the sale process communicating with me updates as well as providing market intel and guidance which lead to meeting my expectations in the sale.
David was a true professional, who was transparent, open and honest from our very first engagement. He went above and beyond to sell our property and has communication throughout the process was second to none. David was highly informative and walked us through the process step by step and ensured we felt supported and comfortable every step of the way. I could not recommend David highly enough.
David is very professional in his approach. A warm genuine person, who took pride in his role as our agent.His communication was great, we always knew exactly what was happening when contracts went out and what people thought at our open house inspection within an hour of them closing.His calm manner was always appreciated. We never felt like just a number. I couldn’t recommend David more highly.
We chose David as our agent as he was genuine & honest in his approach at all times. Our sale took longer than expected due to the change in market, however David's commitment didn't waiver and he always took the time to update us regularly and offer new strategies to encourage more buyers through the house.
We also appreciated that he would turn up 15 mins prior to the open and often stayed back if buyers were still looking through the property, never rushing off to another open. We would have no hesitation in recommending David to other vendors.
This is the second time we have selected David as our agent and again he has achieved another excellent result in what is a tight market. David is very professional yet friendly and knows the market inside out. He kept us fully informed during the whole campaign which was really appreciated and was very accommodating at all times.
I interviewed several agents from several agencies before choosing David to manage the sale of my property. I made the correct choice. Throughout the campaign, I was impressed by David's enthusiasm, grasp of the situation and attention to detail. The process of sale was accomplished in a most competent and efficient manner. Most importantly, in every respect, David displayed absolute and complete, professional integrity. A fine young man.
David was great to work with on the sale of my apartment. He was efficient, communicative, on-the-ball and he negotiated a great result for me. All the way through I felt that he was working as hard for me as if it was his own property - plus he doesn't have any of that real-estate-agent trickiness about him. Pretty much a legend!
It was great working with David. He spent a lot of time answering our questions and always made time to speak or meet with us when needed. Prior to placing my property on the market, David and Belle Property helped to manage the relationship with the tenant as well as organising work involved in prepping my property to sell. He kept us informed the whole way leading up to the auction and was honest in where the sale was at. We were ultimately happy with the end result.
What a pleasure it was working with David. After dealing with many agents throughout the hunt for my new property, David I have to say was the best. His approach was extremely professional and he went out of his way to answer every question, respond to my endless requests and was an absolute delight to deal with. I would not hesitate to recommend David and use him again when the opportunity presents.
When I appointed David to sell my apartment, I was confident with my choice of agent. He presented as a straight shooter, determined, with great local knowledge and had some good comparable sales under his belt. A few weeks later the property sold and for a good price.
Above all, David did not achieve this outcome just because he was a good sales agent; it happened because David was relentless in his endeavour to fulfil his commitment to me, the seller, and no amount of obstacles, tricky circumstances, balancing acts and hard work was going to defeat him. David treated me as well as all potential buyers with great respect and I am immensely grateful for his effort. He went above and beyond!
I recently entrusted David from Belle Property Neutral Bay with the sale of my home and I was not disappointed! After only purchasing the property two years ago of another local agent for $1,217,000, David managed to negotiate a premium offer of $1,900,000 with a buyer from their database.Throughout the whole process, David was honest, professional and down to earth. I would not hesitate to recommend David and will certainly call him when it comes time to sell in the future.
David conducted a very successful campaign selling our apartment. From the first meeting, he was very professional and listened to what we expected from the campaign. David put the campaign together very quickly, which we were delighted about. He kept us informed as to how everything was going which was appreciated. His communication skills really stand out. We are very happy with the great outcome and would recommend David to our family friends and neighbours.
After meeting nine local agents I finally met David. It was his friendly and professional manner that made me feel comfortable and confident to choose David to sell my apartment. English is not my first language and I spoke to David about my concerns; asking if he could speak slowly and wouldn’t mind repeating the same thing several times, and without any hesitation, David was happy to assist.
David kept me up to date with every inspection and every enquiry he received. I found this helpful because I knew the activity and interests in my property. My apartment was meant to go to auction, but due to David's hard work, I accepted an offer that was far higher than I ever thought. David's negotiation skills led to an increased sales result and one very happy vendor.
David was professional, thorough and kept me informed throughout the whole process. He made a difficult process easy and stress-free, and that's really difficult in the real estate industry. Great work David! Highly recommended.
David was a very dedicated and knowledgeable sales agent. He remained in constant contact and ensured I always up to date every step of the way. He worked tirelessly to ensure my property was prepared for market and paid attention to the finer details. It was a pleasure to work with him; he was very approachable and friendly. David has a natural ability to connect with people which is why I chose him as my sales agent. I would not hesitate in recommending him to other vendors.
We could not have been happier with the service provided by David Benjafield and his colleagues at Belle Property Neutral Bay. The recent campaign to market our Naremburn house for sale was seamless.
David's communication with us was exceptional. We found him to be honest and straight forward to deal with. His professionalism, strong work ethic, and care for his clients make him a real force to be reckoned with in the real estate world.
I cannot begin to describe how thankful I am that I chose David to represent me. He is highly professional, a strong communicator not to mention an excellent negotiator. Any agent in the current market could have sold my property, however only David could have negotiated the price that I achieved. Thank you.
David has been an outstanding agent from the beginning right up until the end. David has been in regular communication, showed extreme professionalism and achieved the desired result. I would highly recommend David for anyone interested in buying, selling or leasing.
